: does anyone know what stride bass is?

It's a style of piano left hand bass used alot in Ragtime. A cut time kind of feel (2 notes per bar) - usually the root on the first count, the fifth on the third count of each bar.
You frequently use it on a Jazz tune when the soloist is playing the melody (before you go into the solos).
Hope this helps.
